About

Watershed is a unique venue superbly located on Bristol’s Harbourside with all major travel links within close proximity, offering clients a comfortable and contemporary ambience in the heart of one of Britain's most vibrant cities. Established in 1982, they have many years experience of running events.

They can cater for events from large conferences, festivals and seminars through to evening receptions, exhibitions and small meetings.

With three purpose built cinemas, a large event space seating up to 120 people, two seminar rooms, and an acclaimed and buzzing Café/Bar, it’s easy to find a winning combination to suit your requirements. Let them take care of your presentations for you by providing state of the art audio-visual facilities and full technical support free of charge. Their spaces and services are extremely flexible - from private screenings to corporate conferences, launches to receptions, they deliver successful events for a diverse range of clients such as the BBC, Aardman Animations, Wildscreen (the largest wildlife film festival in the world), Lloyds TSB and Hewlett Packard. Free wi-fi is available throughout the building.

Excellent catering is supplied by their team of in-house chefs who are dedicated to their ‘Plot to Plate’ policy of only offering healthy, organic, locally sourced menus to suit all tastes and budgets. Their teas and coffees are all Fairtrade and they have an excellent selection of organic beers and wines.

Their aim is not merely to be a service provider but to be part of your team, working alongside you every step of the way towards your event, offering a flexible, personal and tailored approach.

So whether you are looking to impress your delegates with state-of-the-art technology, inspire them with light, airy surroundings overlooking the Harbourside or re-energise them with a creative, locally sourced menu, Watershed has the events facilities for you.

“I have booked many events all across venues in central Bristol and have to say I was really impressed with Watershed, you were extremely professional and the venue itself was absolutely perfect. It was definitely the most stress-free event I have had to run.“ British Telecom
